The UFC ends their pay-per-view largely with Saturday’s UFC 245 from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
The event features three championship races, highlighted by the final grudge fight as welterweight champion Kamaru Usman puts his belt in line against bitter opponent Colby Covington. The other two title bouts for the show are Max Holloway’s defense of the featherweight belt against Alexander Volkanovski and women’s bantamweight and featherweight titlist Amanda Nunes facing off with Germaine de Randamie for the bantamweight championship.
Other card contests include former featherweight champion Jose Aldo facing Marlon Moraes and Urijah Faber vs. Peter Yan.

Usman (15-1) is in for a tear. After losing the second race of his career, Usman has surpassed 14 consecutive wins, marked by his excellent performance over Tyron Woodley at UFC 235 to capture gold.
Like Usman, Covington (15-1) rolls into the biggest fight of his life on a long track as well. He has won seven in a row, including Rafael dos Anjos to win the interim title at UFC 225 in June 2018 and a dominant appearance against former welterweight lady Robbie Lawler, winning by a unanimous decision in August.
